Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak told reporters Manning’s foot was sore, but that he would travel with the team for Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh, for which he has been ruled out, according to Andrew Mason of DenverBroncos.com.
Manning watched from the sidelines after throwing on Wednesday and Thursday, his first reps since Nov. 13. He last played in a game Nov. 15 against the Chiefs, after which an MRI revealed a torn left plantar fascia.
Brock Osweiler will start his fifth consecutive game for the Broncos and is 3–1 as a starter since taking over for Manning.
Manning, 39, is in midst of his worst NFL season, leading the league with 17 interceptions in just nine games. The Broncos are 10–3 and lead the AFC West.
